The 36-year-old, who has signed a one-year contract with the option of a further season, has already had two short spells in charge of Greek top-flight teams. He guided Egaleo FC to sixth position in the second half of the 2004/05 campaign, having previously taken the helm of AEK Athens FC between January and June 2004.
A star of the 1994 FIFA World Cup, Dumitrescu hung up his boots almost five years ago, and after a brief stint as an agent, began his coaching career in January 2001 with FC Otelul Galati. He coached another Romanian side FC Brasov during the 2001/02 season, before joining Cyprus's Alki Larnaca FC where he would resign after saving the club from relegation.
Dumitrescu then took the reins of Romania's Under-21 team as well as FCM Bacau before returning to Cyprus with Apollon Limassol FC ahead of his exploits in Greece.
